The brightly coloured work shows a smiling Salah, who has won fans all over the world.

"You analyse Real Madrid playing in other games against other teams and you think "wow, they are really strong", but they never played us". "But we are here because we are Liverpool".

Liverpool have caught out better teams than Madrid with their high pressure blitz this season but they do tend to run out of steam given the physically demanding nature of that approach and that's where Madrid can really punish them. "There isn't any sensation of fear in Madrid about Liverpool - among the directors, among the players", says Spanish journalist Diego Torres. "Not only are we a really good football team, it's in the club's DNA to go for the big things. The experience they have is a big advantage, 100 percent, to feel more confident but in the game the experience doesn't help all the time".

Zidane's side have beaten Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Bayern - this season's French, Italian and German champions - in the knockout rounds, but Klopp still believes his team can upset the odds at the Olympic Stadium.

The 25 year old Egyptian, who has scored 44 goals in 51 appearances in all competitions this season including 10 in the Champions League, is a devoted Muslim.

Meanwhile, Ronaldo could win his fifth Champions League, a landmark reached by only four players before now.

"I am excited to see Naby Keita join the club this summer and I can only promise our supporters that we will continue to improve the squad", Werner said.

All three are paid services, but the former offers a seven-day trial, so fans can use it to watch the final and then cancel afterwards.
